Mudlark BS: Feeding the birds (42) RE: BS: Feeding the birds 09 Nov 04


bbc...if you go to hummingbird feeders in the spring, don't use honey, use cane sugar for the nectar, a ratio of 5-6/1 water/sugar, Never use honey when making your nectar mix. Honey attracts bees and can grow black fungus that will cause a fatal liver and tongue disease in hummingbirds. Red dye coloring not at great idea either, and you don't need it...the birds will find the feeders. Coal tar dyes aren't good for anybody.   With this mix you are liable to get orioles as well (and ants, too, unfortunately...I move my feeders often to stay ahead of them).
